    I just created a new Web site solution. I added a new folder called
    'Admin'. Then I created a new web form in the folder. Without making any
    changes to the web form, when I try to build the project I get the error.
    The web form looks fine. When I remove it from the 'Admin' folder the
    project builds fine. This just does not make any sense. In the past I
    created projects with folders ('Admin' among them) and they build fine.
    Could someone please give me some ideas on how to troubleshoot this error.
    What a meaningless error anyway!

    Thanks,
    Bogdan

  2. When you face problems you can't explain, try cleaning the ASP.NET temporary
    directory.

    I am using an MVP pattern in my website. The presenter and Interface files
    are in the appcode folder. The project was all building fine until I decided
    to include namespaces in the presenter and interfaces. I kept getting the
    "External component has thrown an exception" build error until I realized
    that I had not included the namespace name in the control's code behind page.

    Hope this makes sense and is useful.
